My comment concerns the issue of Hours-of-Service. Would it not make sense to drop the 14 hour rule and instead allow 11 hours of driving and three hours of on-duty (non-driving) time in any 24 hour period? Personally, I can get by on many small periods of sleep, taking a nap when my body needs it.
Fitting my sleep habits into the constraints of the 14-hour rule does not work for me and probably does not work for many other drivers. Let’s have some flexibility in the Hours-of-Service rules to allow for different sleep habits. We are human beings, not machines.
